Your question has many problems due to the way you're explaining things.

Example

My car is missing a bolt, can you help me?

Your question is exactly like what i just posted above. And in order for people to help me i have to explain the following things and force other people to ask me these questions.

  • What kind of car is it
  • What model number is it
  • What kind of bolt is it (metric or american)
  • How long is the bolt
  • From where was the bolt taken
So, lets clean up your question first.

  • What model PS2 are you using (slimline or thick) and what version
  • What mod chip are you using (since you used the word chip I'm forced to assume you are using a mod chip)
  • Is the chip solder-less or soldered into the PS2
  • What media will and will not the PS2 read. Just saying "has stopped working for 95% of my games" doesn't mean anything. Is it not playing playstation 2 games. Is it not playing playstation 1 games. Does it read retail DVD movies. Does it play retail CD Music. The reason behind these questions are to tell tech's what's goin on since we can't actually test your PS2 for you. Once you've defined your question better, then someone can help you. The reason for testing different media tells techs what parts of the PS2 laser lens are and are not working(if any work at all) Basicly there are two independant parts to your laser assembly one part controls DVD's one part control CD's. DVD's include PS2 games and DVD movies. CD's include PS1 games and Music CD's. It is possible for one to function and not the other. Happends all the time.

Please clarifiy your question. I'll check back in a couple days.

I just bought a ps1 off ebay, said working condition, and when i try to play a game, the screen says "insert disk" when theres on in there, ive tried the only 3 games i can find for a ps1, all a bit...


Try to send it back to the seller. The original Playstation (or PS1) is pretty old - like over 10 years old. That's a long time for a video game console to last; especially it it ever got used alot. I hope that you did not pay much for it. I personally wouldn't buy anything that old unless I had alot of PS1 games laying around that I loved to play. If you can't return your PS1 for a refund, then I would suggest buying a PS2; if you're not in the market for a PS3. There are tons of games out for the PS2 and they still occasionally make new games for the PS2. You can find new or used PS2 consoles at Game Stop, Walmart, Meijer, eBay, & etc.

My xbox aint showing anything on mt tv ive tried my scart and that wasnt the problem i then tried my hdmi it still didnt work ive tried on other tvs too


Is there a game in the console when you start it up? If so, take the game out then retry it..


If not.. Then you're going to have to have this console repaired. I suggest 2 options.. Contact the https://www.newcorp.com/ for an extended warranty to have it repaired or search online for reflowing XBOX VGA Chip.

My PS2 controller port stopped working!


Sounds as if it has been dropped .....or an impact to the controller port while one was plugged in. in some cases the in side of the port can become full of dust and dirt causing light rusting creating a loss of connection ...but an impact can break a small chip on the back of the controller port inside the machine , try cleaning out the controller port and check to make sure the metal tabs are clean and un bent.

How to convert ps2 game in hard disk plz sol me


You need a mod chip to burn PS2 games from your hard drive and play them on your PS2. Plain and simple look up a guide for modding PS2's and buy a mod chip for roughly 40-60$ and you're all set.
